(Webinar) How Can Your District Spot—and Support—Diverse Gifted Students?
August 30, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
It can be hard for academically advanced English-language learners to show what they can do before they have mastered the language, and new evidence suggests they are underrepresented in gifted programs in nearly every state. But identifying and serving advanced ELLs can not only help districts respond to new federal reporting requirements, but build a stronger gifted program too. That’s why the 36,000-student Tulsa, Okla., district is experimenting with more-diverse testing, greater parent outreach, and closer observation to fill equity gaps in the district’s advanced programs.
